Finally got this thing connected to our school network (had a terrible time finding the MAC address), I tried out my first cut of a coaster set designed by @thejambi but no cuts or marks were made even though the head moved around each path.
I stopped the job about 10 seconds in and saw smoke coming from the laser head and smelled a burning smell. After turning the machine off and allowing it to cool down, I removed the head to inspect it. I wanted to make sure there wasn’t any packaging left in there that was getting burnt. The only “problem” I can see is a bit of fogging and a dark spot on one of the outside lenses on the bottom.
Here’s a screenshot of the App view
Used default settings for Proofgrade medium maple.
I’m afraid to try again because I don’t want to damage anything. Please help!
